In Peoria, IL, our BOTOX injections are one of the safest remedies to smooth wrinkles and lines and leave you looking refreshed and rejuvenated. Botulinum toxin is a purified substance derived from bacteria. The injections work by halting the nerve signals causing constant facial muscle contractions that lead to wrinkles and lines, called “dynamic wrinkles.” BOTOX can smooth the appearance of:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead creases and folds
- Frown lines between brows
- Vertical neck bands
How does BOTOX work?
BOTOX is a medically-altered neurotoxin. A very tiny quantity of BOTOX, when injected into the correct muscle strands, will halt the continuous motions that create lines and wrinkles. It is imperative that these injections are performed by a highly-skilled injector who understands facial muscle structure, how the product works, where to inject it for superior results, and how much to inject.
The only problems you could run into with injections with BOTOX is poor results from a less qualified injector. At Rashid Plastic Surgery, we are known for our skills with BOTOX injections, and for achieving consistently beautiful results.

The procedure itself requires only about fifteen minutes, after which you can return to work or other activities. Your only restriction is to avoid lying down for several hours, and no vigorous physical activities for 24 hours.
Recovery Time After BOTOX Injections
You may experience a slight redness at the injection site, or minor swelling or bruising, although this is rare. As the days pass, the treated areas become smooth, and lines and creases fade to being almost invisible. Consistent treatments (usually about every three months) can keep your facial appearance looking young, smooth, and revitalized, as if you have just returned from a restful vacation.
